Into the weekend

Spent Thursday evening playing driver for Mr. B, who is not yet 100% recovered from his ailments; this was a hassle since it necessitated driving up to College Park after work and home from there before hitting the rack. However, having the opportunity to drive Richard's Mercedes 450 was very much worth it. Comfort, speed, and high-tech gadgetry to make driving easier. I haven't enjoyed driving this much since piloting a rental Impala to Bloomington on the way back from Cousin Terry's wedding in 2003. Anyway, we met up with Charlie Groark and went to dinner at Outback; there was much discussion of RPGs and anime. When we got back to Richard's I renewed acquaintance with Andy Bartalone, who I hadn't seen since the day I got canned from Skycache. Which is weird, really; we have a number of friends in common and some interests as well. I suspect I'll be seeing more of him since I want to do more wargaming...once I have somewhere to set up games again, that is.

Friday was not so fun. It was check run day, which meant Luis and I spent most of the day printing lien releases, ditto fax cover sheets, taking care of subcontractors who came to pick up their checks, dealing with those subs who called in looking for checks...it made for a very long day. At least I got the (temporary) sole use of an HP printer, which sped things up quite a bit, and found the stream for 100.3 FM, which used to be the easy listening station in these parts but is now the "oldies" station. This means they mostly play music that was current when I was in high school, and the softer stuff to boot...no heavy metal as far as I could tell. Even the few Led Zeppelin tracks they played were the blues ballads and not stuff like "The Immigrant Song".

Much to do tomorrow, which means I need to knock this off and go to bed.
